My first XM

Post by raynoon » Wed Oct 28, 2015 8:36 pm

Here are some photos I found of my very first Citroen XM. I bought it in 2002 for the measly sum of £100. It lasted less than 2 months before the starter motor packed in. It was a 2.0 auto, I can't remember the exact spec but it was fairly basic.
Sadly I scrapped this car and replaced it with the BX in the last pic

The BX was a 19TXD and was an absolute beauty of a car

must of been an Si Ray. Base I models didnt get steering wheel radio controls, unless the wheel was added later.

On a J there was a slight trim upgrade. Initally Base models ONLY had electric front windows and electric sunroof. Then around J reg electric Mirrors were added...

my first XM was a Black G reg 2.oi manual with sunroof that I bought from liverpool! All XMs had ABS as an option, with SE trim having it as standard. My 2.0i had the ABS fitted though.

Ive also had a BX TXD, thye feature the later 1.9d XUD engine with 75bhp in its final N/a guise. They are distingishable by the manifold, the intake pipe is central, rather then earlyer side entry pipe and 65bhp... sorry im rambling..

Ramble away Paul! I'm getting rather excited at my new arrival at the weekend and decided to hunt for these photos. I knew even less about the XM than I do now but the BX was a very rapid car and one of several that I owned

My first XM 2.1 estate cost me £5k+ :o (we had just inherited some money) and I spent a couple of years on a very steep learning curve, my last one cost £150 taxed and MOT. How times change.

I was trying my best to keep it quiet until I completed the sale, but yes, I've agreed to purchase K BAN from Paul and will collect it on Saturday 👍

Congratulations. I'm glad it's found a good home. It's a good looking car (at least it was when I last saw it overtaking me on the A55).
